Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum
Directed Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum follows a queer middle school lunch lady and her multiple lovers, her religious co-worker, a genderqueer student, and a phone sex operator/psychic medium. Through collective dreams a trans-worldly ghost invades the characters’ sleep to reveal an alternate realm of wanton, subconscious desire. Television monitors, radio frequencies, orifices and dreams all become portals to access this mysterious carnal dimension. The film is aesthetically reminiscent of the 90s New Queer Cinema movement, but also campy like John Waters, eerie like David Lynch and video arty, like Pipilotti Rist.
